Papanui Primary School

Kimihia te ara tōtika – Seek the right path.

Papanui Primary is a small Christchurch city school focused on success for children’s academic, social and emotional development.

We believe that children need to feel safe and happy before they can learn, so our terrific staff work collaboratively to create an inclusive and welcoming place for children to learn and grow.

We have a strong focus on our school values of – Personal best – Eke Panuku, Resilience – Aumangea, Learner – Ākonga, Kindness – Atawhai.

Prospective family and whānau are invited to explore our website and we encourage you to visit the school.
